Secret Fall Swap

I signed up to participate in the Secret Fall Swap hosted by Jenn at Yankee Ridge Primitives. 
When I got home from school today I had a package waiting for me.  My secret partner was Denise from Florida and check out what she sent to me: 

Denise, you were far to kind!  I LOVE everything. 

First she made this adorable autumn pillow.  I put it in a chair in our living room with the pumpkin guy that my friend Melissa made for me.  They are the perfect compliment for this antique chair my Mom gave me earlier this month. 
I absolutely LOVE this Autumn pin keep.  The colors are perfect:
This little gingham pumpkin is done in maroon (my favorite color) - check out the tiny mouse on the top - how cute is that?

I put both the pinkeep and pumpkin in my bowl rack - perfect! 

Denise made me ANOTHER pinkeep - this one says "A haunting we will go".  I took it's picture in the bowl rack, but I have to find a perfect home for it on a shelf -maybe it will be in the dining room.

Cinnamon dough ornaments painted, 3 pumpkins and 3 black cats (with green eyes) are a great fall accent for my bowl of dried black walnuts...

A Prim stitchery - this one might go in the downstairs half bath...
To round out this generous gift, she sent along wax tarts in Pumpkin spice, 2 grungy pumpkins, a little bag of rosehips and a great Indian corn made from a neat fall plaid

Denise,  THANK YOU so much for the wonderful Secret Fall Swap box. 

My partner ( I can't tell you who it is - it's a secret!)  is still waiting on her package - I have something in it that might melt and won't mail it out until Friday or Saturday when the weather cools off just a little.
